       Personal Mission Statement
I strive for the best; nothing ever stands in my way. I may not always succeed
the first time around, but I will never give up. I reach for the stars, and never
accept anything less than the best. These rules apply in everything I do, say,
and hear. My ultimate objective in life is to be the man God wants me to be and
the person I know I can be.

For the career I choose, I know I will be the best, and for whatever path I take, I
know it will be the right one.

Each day of my life I push to be the best I can, to live life to the fullest, stay true
to my beliefs and to respect and cherish those closest to me.

I value my life, my spiritual beliefs, my family, my friends, and my
accomplishments.



                                                                    Jump to first page

           Communication Skills
In today‟s world, communication is the essence of survival. My
communication skills have improved tremendously after taking
Fundamentals of Speech at Schoolcraft College. In this class, I
learned 8 professional techniques that helped me feel more
confident when talking in front of others. Knowing how to
construct your speeches and control your mannerisms are all key
elements of effective speaking. In order to be an influential and
successful leader, we all need to know how to conduct ourselves
when speaking and communicating with others.

              Presentation Skills
This presentation was from my Management class; our topic was
on something that people deal with every day, ethics. We worked
together as a team and while constructing this presentation, I was
the team leader.

              General Education
Arts and Humanities:
Having a better understanding of how people react to situations in
life helps you have a better understanding of how they‟re feeling.
My Human Relations class taught me how and why people react
to certain situations in life. This class taught me the foundations
of human behavior, fundamental skills of working as a team leader
and a team member, and ways of anticipating, preventing, and
coping with challenges of human relations.

Mathematics:
Knowing how to do simple math such as multiplication, division,
and percentages are all key elements one must have to work in
the business community. Business Math has sharpened my skills
in the world of math. This class taught me how to compute simple
compound interest, taxes, insurance bonds, and many more key
elements involved in business math.

Writing:
Being able to construct writing materials for the business world is
something that any business professional must know. My
Business English class taught me how to put together simple
layouts, whether it was a letter, memorandum, or report. The
class has also taught me methods of collecting, preparing and
presenting data in a more constructive and effective way.

Question
Gilbert Construction Company borrows funds at 10% for 54 days to build a home. Find the principal that
results in interest of $780.

          Solution:
          Write the rate as .10, the time as 54/360 and then use formula for principal.

          Formula               P=I/RT

          P=780                 780
          .10 x 54/360=         0.015                  The principal is $52,000.00


          Check your answer by using this simple formula.


          Formula               I= PRT

          I= $52,000.00 x .10 x 54/360= $780

Example Humanities:
Something else that I would like to add to attitude is that your attitude
determines your approach to life. Always having a bad attitude makes you an
uptight and distressed person. It„s funny to see people get angry over the
littlest things. When I see this, I laugh, and think to myself, “I used to be like
that!” It is who you are that determines what you see. Staying positive in life
and not letting little things irritate you is key to making the best out of it. I have
my own philosophy that I live by and you may find it beneficial as well- “You are
only on this planet once so why not make it fun and be grateful for everything
you have and love, because you never know when your time is up.”

Essay Research:
               Isn‟t it amazing to think that 430,000 Americans die due to premature deaths related to smoking each year? This is the main
reason why there are so many different health issues being studied that connect deaths to smoking tobacco. Some of the most known being
emphysema, heart disease, and lung cancer. Aside from these health problems, there are many studies revealing the harmful effects of cigar
smoking, which is thought to be harmless by many people. Another big issue to be recognized as a problem with smoking is the effects that
second-hand smoke exerts on others. So why do people smoke?
               Most smokers take up smoking as adolescents, due to experimentation. This experimentation often becomes an addiction. The
addiction is caused by nicotine, a drug that acts as a stimulant. When ingested in large doses, nicotine can cause vomiting, nausea, headaches,
stomach pains, convulsions, paralysis, and even death. In addition, many tobacco companies add Ammonia to the tobacco to enhance the effect
of nicotine, causing the drug to be even more addictive. Although many people know that this highly addictive and dangerous drug is in tobacco,
over 3,000 new smokers begin smoking regularly every day.
               One of the most known diseases caused by smoking tobacco is emphysema. Emphysema is the breakdown of small air sacs in
the lungs, called alveoli. This breakdown causes the lungs to loose their elasticity, which, in turn, causes difficulty of inhaling and exhaling.
Symptoms consist of coughing, wheezing, chronic mucus, and difficulty breathing. Treatments include medication, anti-inflammatories,
antibiotics, inhalers, breathing exercises, and many others.
               Heart disease is another health problem related to smoking. Through recent studies, experts have found that 75% of all coronary
heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in the United States, is attributed to smoking. Symptoms of this life-threatening disease
consist of chest discomfort, unusual shortness of breath, dizziness or fainting, prolonged irregular heartbeats, and sudden weight gain. Studies
have also shown that inhaling tobacco smoke causes many other damaging effects to the cardiovascular system.




                                                                                                                      Jump to first page

Essay Research:
               Among other attributes, smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer. Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in
men and is becoming the most common cause in women. Symptoms, often occurring in the later stage of the disease, include shortness of
breath, coughing up blood, chest pain, fever, weakness, weight loss, appetite loss, and shoulder pain. Although treatment, such as surgery,
radiation, and chemotherapy may prolong survival, life expectancy among victims of this disease is less than five years after diagnosis.
               Contrary to popular belief, recent studies have found that cigars also contribute to diseases related to tobacco smoke, even if a
person doesn‟t inhale. Statistics taken from a study showed that smoking cigars significantly increases your risk of attaining the cancers of the
lip, throat, esophagus, and lungs, as well as emphysema and heart disease. Although doctors have known about these risks for many years,
new research has increased the pressure of requiring federal warning labels on all cigar packages.
               Many people smoke, ignorant to the fact that they are not only risking the health of themselves, but they are also risking the health
of others around them. Second-hand smoke is a major issue involved with smoking. In a survey conducted by the National Asthma Campaign,
over three million non-smokers work in facilities in which they are frequently or constantly exposed to people‟s cigarette smoke. This isn‟t even
including the millions of other people who are exposed to smoke due to family and friends.
               It is obvious that smoking in this country, and others, has become a major health issue. The list of health risks related to smoking
is endless. It effects the way people live their lives and how long they live. In order to reduce people‟s risks of these diseases or even death,
smokers must do their best to quit smoking.




                                                                                                                    Jump to first page
